4.29/5 rDev +5.9%
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks, Dave, for throwing this in as an extra!
A: dark, rusty brown
S: really intense: earthy citrus; toffee, vanilla, and oak; burnt brown sugar; spicy cola notes?
T: lots of toffee and brown sugar upfront; light barrel character: oaky vanilla butterscotch; strong hoppy notes; powerful but non-cloying sweetness; strong alcohol presence; could not get enough of this
M: thick, chewy, and sticky
O: fantastic integration of hop notes and barrel character

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours a hazy copper with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and brown sugar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but quite boozy.
